This article introduces you to a free set of Photoshop wireframe kits that include announcements, pictures and videos, form fields, headings, paragraphs, bulleted lists, navigation, ad banners, and elements of an ordinary site, such as a search box, an e-mail sign-up form, and so on.
The use of this kit is very simple. Create a blank Photoshop document and open the PSD file for the wireframe kit, and then drag and drop the elements you need from the suite to your own blank Photoshop file for layout design.
If you have two monitors or have a large screen, this will be very helpful. I usually open a blank Photoshop file on one screen and look at another screen to open the wireframe kit. As you can see, all the elements in the suite are black. You can easily change the background by controlling the transparency of the elements.
